Isaiah 40:8 ESV, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.”
As I reflect on my own life, there were many times where I didn’t have a right understanding of God’s Word, so I wasn’t living like I should have been. There were also times when I knew what God’s Word said, but still chose to be disobedient and do what I wanted to do. However regardless of me, I’m thankful that God’s Word never changed. It remained the same throughout my lack of understanding and disobedience. It was me that needed to change, by making a decision to obey His Word.
The fact that God’s Word will stand forever, is the reason we can place our hope in Him. It brings such joy to know His Word will always stand. He patiently waits for us to seek Him and turn from our sinful ways. As we seek Him, we will become more like Jesus and have a better understanding of His will for our lives.
God’s Way Is perfect, His Word is flawless…
Psalm 18:30 NIV, “As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.”
We can trust God, and His Word. He will lead us down the right path. I’m thankful the Holy Spirit doesn’t give up on us. He is patient as we grow in godliness. But diligently seeking God is the part we are responsible for. When we ask Him to, He will strengthen us to seek Him daily.
